Description:
After today's evolution-exchange updrade (evolution-exchange (2.22.1-1 -> 2.22.2-1), evolution-exchange doesnt start automatically when launching evolution, hence no exchange server accounts work...

When selecting a MS exchange account it says "Lost Connection to Evolution Exchange Backend"

I can run `/usr/lib/evolution/evolution/2.22/evolution-exchange-storage` manually and it works perfectly.



Additional info:
* package version(s)
local/evolution 2.22.2-1
Integrated Workgroup and Personal Information Management for Gnome
local/evolution-data-server 2.22.2-1
Evolution Data Server provides a central location for addressbook and
calendar in the GNOME Desktop
local/evolution-exchange 2.22.2-1
Ximian Connector Exchange plugin for Evolution
local/evolution-webcal 2.21.92-1 (gnome-extra)
Evolution Web calendar

* config and/or log files etc.


Steps to reproduce:
Launch evolution, navigate to an exchange account.

Seems like a package issue...

Same Issue here--> http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-gnome/2008-May/020254.html

In file
/usr/lib/bonobo/servers/GNOME_Evolution_Exchange_Storage_2.22.server

<oaf_server iid="OAFIID:GNOME_Evolution_Exchange_Component_Factory:2.22"
type="exe"
location="/home/stable/opt/gnome/libexec/evolution/2.22/evolution-ex

location="/home/stable/opt/gnome/libexec/evolution/2.22/evolution-exchange-storage
should actually be
location="/usr/lib/evolution/evolution/2.22/evolution-exchange-storage"

Found the bug in pkgbuild

http://repos.archlinux.org/viewvc.cgi/evolution-exchange/repos/extra-i686/PKGBUILD?revision=2564

./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
--libexecdir=/var --disable-static --with-libdb=/usr || return 1
should be instead
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc \
--libexecdir=/usr/lib/evolution --disable-static --with-libdb=/usr || return 1

This solved the issue... I have no issues now.

Same issue here, recompiling the package with poor_kenny's fix solves it for me.

Hmm, first of all, I wonder how I got this /var libexecdir in there, it should be --libexecdir=/usr/lib/evolution --localstatedir=/var...
Second, there's an upstream bug in the build process that hardcoded the path into the bonobo server file. I guess just deleting the .server file from the source should fix this.
